“Scenic View” by Photographer Tom Hoying

Columbus, Ohio-based photographer Tom Hoying explores tourist culture in his series “Scenic View”. He says, “Every year millions of people visit countless landmarks, lookouts, monuments, and museums in search of an authentic lived experience. The nostalgia of place can be overwhelmingly powerful. Often the anticipation of a photographed experience, and the memories associated with the photographs produced are more potent than the lived experience itself.”
